After returning for our annual winter snowbird season, we have put the Driftwood at the top of our eating out stops! From the service, the quality of the food, the laid back atmosphere, it is truly a foody's dream come true! The location is a little out of the way, but as the locals know, well worth the trip!!!

I was taken here by friends who are locals. It’s not out on the water so it’s not well known by tourists.  I had the all you can eat crab legs. GREAT!!! Unlike the buffets, they bring you smaller HOT portions as you need them. Service was excellent and due to my friends, the owner stopped by to visit.... More

We loved Driftwood! Locals love the fact that not too many people are even aware of it. They have something to make everyone happy. Be sure to go on your birthday with an ID showing your birth date and get a free meal.

Noting real stand out about the place, but decent enough. Popular with locals so maybe it's just me.

We went to this restaurant based on other reviews on Trip Advisor. The restaurant is in a strip of fast food restaurants. The environment of the restaurant is rustic but homey. The waitress came out with a dish of hot sweet hushpuppies and tuna and crackers. There is a bar and they serve alcoholic beverages. We ordered the she crab... More

We've been coming to Myrtle Beach for years and just now came across Driftwood Seafood and Steak restaurant in Murrells Inlet. Love it! Food was great, service was great and the prices were reasonable. Wish we would have heard about this place sooner! We'll definitely be going again.

What a pleasant surprise. We are in Myrtle Beach and were told to try the Driftwood. For the beach dinner, off the main drag, perfect for the slower pace. They have a daily special that includes dessert .

It's a locally owned non chain restaurant. Away from all the hustle and bustle of main Myrtle beach in the Burgess community. It's a joint for the locals which is why I titled my visit as "comfortable". But if your a tourist don't let that discourage you. Gentleman at the bar was very helpful and didn't let me get dry....

There was a 20 minute wait for our early bird dinner (longer by the time we left) and I really don't understand why. The nautical theme of the restaurant is interesting and the staff was pleasant but my food was not particularly good. I ordered broiled scallops that had no flavor to speak of and didn't have any color on... More

We like this restaurant because the food is always good, they have an early bird menu which includes dessert, and a senior menu which is surprisingly varied. You receive free hushpuppies and smoked tuna dip. The waitstaff is helpful and courteous. If you are looking for a neighborhood restaurant, not fancy, with good reliable seafood, this is the place for... More
